Phone Scripts 7.9-7.11.2018: REUNITE the KIDS/Trump is Destroying Our Healthcare + More

The children remain separated from their parents. The government reneges on health care cost, leaving families stranded. The president meets with Putin - with no witnesses. And the president gets to appoint the next member of the Supreme Court.

All this will continue to happen. We change the outcome by calling. Reunite the children. Help families. Reject this president. Use our scripts!

Monday:  Thirteen Days:  Reunite the Children!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand that the Trump regime reunite all children under five years old IMMEDIATELY, per the court order issued thirteen days ago that stipulated they be returned within fourteen days.

Trump created a bogus “border crisis” where non existed and used it as an excuse to arrest and detain parents, then tear their children away from them – and then lose track of them. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw ordered the administration to return all children under five to their parents within fourteen days. Now Health and Human Services is saying they can’t meet the deadline even for those children – and there are only about 100 of them. The regime isn’t acting in good faith. The children must be returned NOW.

I need [the MoC] to make a bold public statement about this TODAY and EVERY DAY until the children are safe in their parent’s arms.

Tuesday:  Time’s UP! Reunite the children!!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand that the Trump regime reunite all children under five years old IMMEDIATELY, per the court order issued two weeks ago that stipulated they be returned by today.

The Trump regime is acting in bad faith. When Thailand wanted to rescue trapped kids, they set to work and started saving lives. When Trump was told to reunite kids under five with their parents, he went golfing and his lawyer went dog-sitting. I need [the MoC] to RAISE BLOODY HELL about this. Because nothing less will work.

Wednesday:  REUNITE the KIDS.

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand that the Trump regime reunite all migrant children ripped from their parents IMMEDIATELY.

The Trump regime is acting in bad faith. When Thailand wanted to rescue trapped kids, they set to work and started saving lives. When Trump was told to reunite kids under five with their parents, he went golfing and his lawyer went dog-sitting. He’s counting on us moving on to the next outrage. NO WAY. I need [the MoC] to RAISE BLOODY HELL about this. Because that’s what you’d do if it was your kid.

Trump is Destroying Our Healthcare

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to denounce the Trump attacks on the Affordable Care Act that are destroying our healthcare system.

Nearly every week, the Administration adds another attack against the structure of the Affordable Care Act. In itself, this is impeachable:  the president is supposed to uphold the law, not undermine it. In the meantime, the attacks are undermining the health insurance of tens of millions. As the system crumbles, people will die. We can’t fix this legislatively right now, but we can shout it from the rooftops:  Trump is destroying your healthcare. I need to hear that, loud and clear, from [my MoC] this week.

Russia Owns Trump and the GOP

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to denounce the capitulation of Trump and the GOP to Vladimir Putin.

Waiting for definitive proof of conspiracy is foolhardy. What’s clear enough is that Trump and the GOP are doing Russia’s bidding against the interests of our country. There is absolutely no doubt of this and it is treasonous.

I’m demanding that [the MoC] say this today and every day:  Russia is using Trump and the GOP to attack our country. The president* and the #KremlinEight are helping. That’s treason.

FIGHT Trump’s Court Pick Tooth and Nail!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask the Senator to fight tooth and nail against Trump’s right to make a Supreme Court pick.

No president in our history, until now, has been accused of taking office through illegal means. There is every reason to believe that Trump has and that Russia is the beneficiary. It is likely that his fate will eventually be decided by the Supreme Court. Trump must NOT be allowed to hand-pick the judge who will cast the deciding vote on his own guilt. I need you to fight against Trump’s pick as if your country depended on it. IT DOES. No half-measures. No backing down. FIGHT.
